Local Connection: Donating to Goodwill during holiday season

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The holiday season is once again rushing at us with Halloween this Saturday night.  

I'd like to remind you that there is a way to both bring more fun to the holiday and do something important and good for the community.

Consider using Goodwill for your Halloween shopping.

It's a good idea - it saves you money and helps put people to work.

Revenue from the 11 stores on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island pays for job training and career development for people who otherwise have trouble finding productive work.

Goodwill has a great track record in Hawaii. Last year they served more than 12-thousand people with job readiness and placement.  Every day…

Goodwill helped four more people find meaningful jobs.  

Its certainly one of the good things about Hawaii. 

Like so many other social service agencies, it is counting on all of us to be able to continue the mission.

If you've already bought your Halloween stuff, think about donating it to Goodwill after the holiday. 

Have fun. And feel good doing it. Happy Halloween.
